In Aug of 1828, Elijah Dean, James Chance and Ratliff Echols are three of the appraisers of t he estate of Edward Stafford and James Dean posts part of the $16,000 bond for the estate.
NOTE: This is the only real time that Elijah Dean and James Dean seem to cross paths.

NOTE: This is a huge breakthrough.
(1) The document connects the four Pages of Burkes and Laurens Co, GA: This is the first soli d connection I have found between Elijah Dean (married Martha Page) and Lunsford C Pitts (mar ried Ruth Page) Elijah, as JP in Laurens, GA also performed the marriage between Baptist Scot t (see below) and Margaret Page and between Jacob Page and Elizabeth Roberts.
(2) Connects the Colemans, Reeses, Pitts, Lunsfords, and Deans: Elijah?s daughter Martha R De an married Tomalin Reese (see below) and named a son Lunsford Pitts Reese. (Lunsford Pitts R eese is injured severely in the Civil War, having joined the AL 33rd in Greenville, Butler, A L, and goes to Bonifay, FL, after the war.) This is also the first connection I?ve found t o the Lunsford family (Henry Lunsford), some of whom that went to Texas in the group with Sim eon Dean in 1870 are surely from the same family. Tomalin Reese?s grandmother was Susan Colem an (Andrew Jackson Deens married a Louise Coleman although I do not know if related).
Ordered that Rueben E. Brown, Isham Dinkins, Elijah Dean, David Patten, and John Chambers b e appointed appraisers of the estate of Henry R. Blanchard, dec.

NOTE: A Mariah Sheppard of Wayne, NC, married Matthew Revell in Twiggs Co, GA in 1817. Mat thew was the brother of Mary Ann ?Polly? Revell that married Thomas Abel Briley; Abel and P olly Revell Briley were my 3rd great grandparents.

NOTE: the following site has every one of the surnames above. I believe that they are the sa me families.

Oglethorpe and Wilkes provi ded the men that served with Elijah Clarke during that occupation. <http://wc.rootsweb.ances try.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=SHOW&db=gilead07&surname=Dean%2C+Thomas+Wesley+%5BSr%5D>
I believe that the Jordan Reese above is the uncle of Tomalin Reese who married Elijah Dean? s daughter Martha.
[Another Jordan Reese b. 1827 married a JETER in Texas; the Jeters married into Bobbi?s Deans .]
